Everbearing Mulberry Tree

Abundant, Delicious Berries You Can Grow without Spraying


The heights we list are after we prune your tree.

Many Nurseries advertise heights before they prune, then cut off several feet before shipping. While this reduces their shipping cost, it gives their customer a shorter tree than they bargained for. The tree will likely need an extra year to grow back and to produce fruit.

We prune your tree throughout its life. This process takes us longer, but gives you more branches and quicker production.

Plus, we don't include the pot or root length in our measurements. This gives you an extra 1-2 ft. in tree size.

Our larger trees are usually one to two years older than our smaller ones and will typically give you results the first full season.

These low-maintenance, attractive shade trees quickly mature into a stately ornamental tree that provides tons of berries! And because they're drought tolerant, you don't have to worry about babying them.

That means they'll tolerate bad weather, extreme heat, poor soil and pollution.

They are also sturdy and wind-resistant.

Plant your tree in full sun for abundant fruit. After these trees flower in May, they'll start to set fruit.

You'll be picking these one-inch sweet fruits from June to August. Even at a young age, you can pick a surprising amount of berries. Mulberries make tasty jams, jellies and pies. 

The berries ripen over an extended period of time... unlike many other fruits which seem to ripen all at once. These delicious and nutritious fruits resemble blackberries and are bursting with flavor! You won't see these berries on supermarket shelves, but you can easily grow them in your own backyard.

This easy-to-grow tree will provide you and your family with enough succulent fruit to keep you happy all summer. Besides picking tons of fruit, you'll have a beautiful tree to admire in your landscape. This tree features large heart-shaped leaves, some sculpted with lobes.

The bark on younger trees often appears an attractive orangish color, maturing to gray-brown. This handsome deciduous tree will give you dense shade during the hot summer months... but lets in the much-needed sunlight during the winter.

It's Easy to Plant your Everbearing Mulberry Tree

Step 1 - Dig Your Hole

Select a site with full to partial sun and moist or well drained soil for your Everbearing Mulberry Tree.

First, dig each hole so that it is just shallower than the root ball and at least twice the width.

Then loosen the soil in the planting hole so the roots can easily break through.

Use your shovel or try dragging the points of a pitch fork along the sides and bottom of the hole.

Step 2 - Place Your Plant

Next, separate the roots of your Everbearing Mulberry Tree gently with your fingers and position them downward in the hole.

The top of the root flare, where the roots end and the trunk begins, should be about an inch above the surrounding soil.

Then make sure the plant is exactly vertical in the hole.

To make it just right, use a level.

Step 3 - Backfill Your Hole

As you backfill the hole, apply water to remove air pockets.

Remove debris like stones and grass and completely break up any dirt clumps.

Water your Everbearing Mulberry Tree again after the transplant is complete.

To help retain some of that moisture, it's recommended that you place mulch around each plant to a depth of 2"-3" up to but not touching the trunk. Organic mulches such as wood chips also help to better soil structure as they decompose.

What pests are attracted to this tree?
bettyboop on Sep 26, 2014
Best Answer: Dear Betty Boop,
We have had Mulberry trees for the past 30 years and bought this one to replace one that was destroyed by a heavy October snow a few years back. I'm happy to tell you that they attract only humans and the song birds that we feed year round. Occasionally a Chipmunk will brose the ground under the tree for some juicy treats. Hope this puts your mind at ease.

how far should I cut back?
A shopper on Sep 6, 2014
Best Answer: The only pruning I've every done in the past 30 years was to shape the tree to uniform appearance, and then only about a third of the limb, branch, stem either spring (reducing the amount of fruit) or fall (preferred).

How long is the growing season for a this tree? Where I live, there are often frosts in the first part of June, and sometimes in the last weeks of August. Is there enough time for the mulberries to grow in those 10 - 12 weeks?
Hannah B on Aug 19, 2014
Best Answer: I live in Essex NJ, zone 6, where the last frost day is May 20. The tree is growing well here. You should check your area's plant growing zone and the tree's growing zone.

Will my Trees and Shrubs Look Like the Photographs?

Most trees and plants on the website are pictured in their mature form. Depending on the product and growth rate, mature development can take years for your plant to resemble the photos.

Picture the last time you took a walk in the woods. The young trees were not miniature bonsai versions of mature trees. Instead they were naturally thin and lanky. Young trees are programmed to race toward the light, before the competing vegetation crowds them out. Once established at 10 feet or more, they start developing a wide canopy and shedding lower limbs.

Bare Root trees are shipped without dirt or any green foliage showing. Some customers who have never planted bare root before, think that they received a "dead stick" with roots. These dormant trees are basically sleeping over the winter as most trees do. Because of their hibernation-like stage, this is a great way to transplant these trees. Since a bare root tree lacks foliage, they need very little moisture.

Most Trees and Shrubs are Pruned Before Shipping... at No Cost to You

Pruning makes plants appear to be less-full than the ones you may have seen at your local big box garden center. A retailer's goal is to have plants look their best while sitting in the store. Our goal is to have them look the best after you plant them.

Pruned trees and shrubs not only travel better, but become established much quicker. So rather than supporting extra foliage, they put their energy into sending out deep roots. Once that happens, your plants become hardier and quickly explode with new top growth. Above the ground, pruning helps your plants develop a more attractive form.
